Yes, I haven't read a book on metaphysics in like a year. I actually haven't read a lot this past year save for some dark fantasy. I think the current outrage culture is geared more towards political extremists than religious fundamentalists. Early 2000s to early teens dealt with the emergence of the new atheist movement, and a mass awareness that religion is at odds with the exponentially moving progressive ethos--redefining marriage, radical feminism, etc. Social issues vs the religious conservative had a philosophical backdrop of feuding ideas. One of these feuds was metaphysical in nature, atheism vs theism. But the two bitter philosophical stags of theism and atheism have waned, and the prevailing cultural dialogue is now purely political which in itself has its own creeds, dogmatists, orthodoxy, etc.
